Status Update: It's Happening - January Timeline
08 January 2014 by Joey Cofone
Baron Fig books, an idea that bloomed nearly a year ago, is about to come to fruition—right in your mailbox.
Here’s what going on in this magical month of January 2014.
Right now, in early January, production is just about finalized. Thousands of Kickstarter-backed books are nearly set, cut, bound, and packaged. Very soon, manufacturing will be wrapped up.
In mid-Jaunary, we’re going to transfer the books from our manufacturing location to our shipping location. Sending thousands of books over thousands of cumulative miles is a task unto itself—including the packing at one end and the unpacking on the other—but it looks like the whole process shouldn’t take more than a couple of weeks.
By late January all the books will be unpacked, sorted, and 100% ready to go at our shipping facility. Once we get the green light, we're going to send out 8,760 books to 4,242 Kickstarter backers. Note: It will take about a week to ship 4k+ orders, which means there may be some overflow into February as we continue to send books out as they’re packed, labeled, and ready.
Once that's done we'll begin taking feedback and preparing to launch to the public. Thank you for your support thus far, we absolutely couldn’t have done it without you. If you have any questions you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us via @baronfig.
